lesbians and a much bolder statement in many ways in mr. obama's governing philosophy from here on out. >> we, the people, declare today that the most evident of truths, that all of us are created equal, is the star that guides us still. just as it guided our forebearers through seneca falls and stone wall, a it guided all those men and women, sung and unsung who left footprints along this great mall to hear a preacher say that we cannot walk alone, to hear a king proclaim that our individual freedom is inextricably bound to the freedom of every soul on earth. >> a very big day for the president, for washington, for the country. a very exciting day if you're fascinated by the clash of political ideas. we're going to be looking at the speech as politics and poetry. the day as history and the night as culture. before we do that, let's listen to a little of stevie wonder. ♪ jamming ♪ in the middle of the makings of obama oh jamming ♪ ♪ say it louder ♪ i can't hear you ♪ in the middle of making of obama jamming ♪ ♪ yeah, yeah make some noise ♪ making things better for eve

olympic operation, i guess, back many, many -- >> '70s and '80s. >> so compared to a state government operation, it was not that sophisticated, but in the sport of cycling, bill, do you think this was the most sophisticated cycling operation? >> sure. they perfected it for that era. they were the most organized. they had the most money. and the widest reach. >> he also seems to be saying that he wasn't doing anything that the culture wasn't doing. at one point he said that the epo generation began in the mid'90s. he was just sort of part of this generation. as you said, this was the most well-funded team. did they have access to stuff that other riders didn't have access to? >> they did. >> they did? >> that's the old level the playing field argument. when you have the doctor on an exclusive contract where you are the only one that can work with him, that's a bit of an advantage. when you have a private jet, billions of dollars and access to medicines other people don't have, that's all an advantage. >> amazingly, he says he didn't feel that it was wrong. oprah said, did you feel bad

way the algerian government has handled the situation, particularly not informing the u.s. or other governments about this operation before it began. >> exactly. they did not get any notice. the british said it, the united states said it. there was frustration also in the lack of information, the lack of clarity, conflicting information that was given. but the other part of it is, you know, algeria has been useful in the war against terror, and they have, of course, given overflight to france to go into mali. so they are useful, but the techniques they use would not be the techniques certainly that some western governments would use or western militaries would use. they are more brutal. they're not -- they don't -- >> more plunt. >> -- take their time coming in. >> less surgical if that's the right term. jill dougherty, i appreciate you working your sources late into the night for us. we appreciate it. we're going to be right back. fortunately we've got ink. it gives us 5x the rewards on our internet, phone charges and cable, plus at office supply stores. rewards we put right back i

centuries long debates about the role of government for all time, but it does require us to act in our time. >> millions of americans, of course, watched president obama lay out his vision for the country yesterday. keeping them honest, though, even as he spoke, another big washington power player was already gearing up to advance its agenda. not lawmakers, judges or journalists. lobbyists. gearing up for battle to block bills or change them, usurp loopholes or widen them. talking about republicans, democrats, you name it. you might like some of what they're doing, but chances are you won't be pleased about this. a congresswoman who just got re-elected but is leaving already, taking what she learned in congress to get paid big dollars, leaving the people who elected her basically high and dry. drew griffin is keeping them honest. >> reporter: she may be the perfect example of what washington critics call the revolving door syndrome. congresswoman, it's drew griffin with cnn. which could explain why all we got from congresswoman joann emerson was the slam-door treatment. the southeast m

pay back some of these lawsuits? >> he will pay back some. he will settle. the government settles these sort of cases. let's say he loses 50 million bucks, he still has a fair amount. he's not going to starve. he will have his narrative back, have his life as a competitive athlete back. the question is he going to apologize to this people he hurt along the way? we talk about this as if he's the only part of the story. in fact, he's not. the story is much bigger than just him. >> he has great pr. but, as you and i talked about before, juliette, he was a jerk to an awful lot of people. i mean, he sought to destroy people who would testify against him, who had spoken the truth. >> i think jerk is an understatement. i think a lot of those people are devastated right now. and i don't really know what to think when he's calling some of these people up to apologize. i actually spoke to a few people he has reached out to and they're like dumbfounded. they don't know whether to believe him or not. >> did you see him threaten people, reporters who reported things that he felt were inappropr

possibilities was reagan, that was almost a different political age. it was harder to govern then. >> you also think about, had the clintons and how bill clinton -- he seemed to revel in politics, the reaching out to people. in the article, i found it fascinating that the obamas haven't had bill and hillary clinton over for dinner. i -- i mean, she's -- all the things that bill clinton did during the campaign, all the work that hillary clinton's done, they've never had a dinner at the white house with them? >> i think this is something outsiders find difficult and surprising. the obamas can be vivacious, charming they have great public personalities. what people in washington see -- but i think people all over the country don't necessarily see it, there's an intro version there, a self-protectedness. the obamas said both when the president became famous in 2004 and again when they came to washington, no new friends, which is the opposite of what we expect from politicians. they generally succeed by making everybody their friend. >> some people like to be president because they enjoy the o

olympic program, it wasn't that sophisticated as the government program was. all that was just part one of his interview with oprah. part two is tonight. to say the least, a lot of people very anxious to hear what he has to say next. we have assembled some people who know armstrong very well. he's a former teammate of tyler hamilton and an author. bill strickland is here as well. an editor at large at bicycling magazine, has written about armstrong for years and cnn legal analyst jeffrey toobin. you have been in touch with armstrong since that interview. i guess in the last 24 hours. what can you say about what he said? >> i we had an exchange, last noilt night, he asked if i watched the interview. >> did he think you might not be watching? >> i gave him my opinion of what i thought he had done right, and the parts i thought he was wrong about. and we had, i would say, kind of a respectful exchange about that. this morning, we had another one. and it ended with something i thought was very interesting. he kind of signed off by saying, work to do. >> what did you take that to mean? >
